PICKUP IN NY

WHERE EXACTLY SHOULD WE TELL RIDE TO PICK US UP AT PIER

answer 1
Pier 88
12th Avenue and 55th Street; it is set up much like an airport, departures on one level, arrivals on another level.
To avoid crowds you could meet across the street from the pier, but the cruisers would have to carry their luggage with them.

The port has been restricting traffic entering the terminal, and arriving passengers have been sent out across 12th avenue to wait for pickup. Pier 88 - the southernmost - is at 48th street, but it gets very hectic there, as there's also a cab stand there. I found we were better off walking a few blocks north or south, finding a quieter area and telling my driver where we were.

Question

What time will someone be able to pick us up when we arrive back in New York on 3/2

My husband is driving up from Philadelphia to pick me up following my cruise and we are trying to plan so that neither of us have a long wait.

Normally, the ships dock early in the morning and they allow passengers to disembark around 8 AM. The disembarkation starts after the ship is cleared by customs. NCL uses color coded bag tags each with a different time slot for disembarkation. You can pick the time slot that is convenient for you. The last passenger will disembark about 2.5-3 hours after disembarkation starts.
You can plan to disembark around 9:30 or 10 AM. That way you are not rushing to get off the ship in the morning and it will give your family members enough time to get to NY,

Depending on when the ship arrives, it usually takes about 30 mins to clear customs; then if you decide to carry your own luggage off you can be one of the first ones off the ship, (or you can leave at any time you desire) which on average is about 8:30am. It has been my experience that more people than usual carry off their luggage than in any other port. Customs usually goes pretty quickly, but I would say a safe time would be 9-9:30am, I would leave yourself about 30 mins to get off the ship and curbside.

The galley (kitchens) and food prep stations are in that area.

It's crew access only. As it's located directly beneath the main galley (kitchen) on deck six, I'd guess its part of the food preparation area.

Is wifi available on board

Answers
answer 1
All NCL ships have Wi-Fi. However since the ship is mostly metal, the Wi-Fi signal may not be the best at all places.
You can purchase minutes in blocks of 30/60/100/250 or pay as you use.
Remember that the ship uses satellite communication for internet connection and it's quite slow.

Yes, but Wifi is not free, it is a satellite connection which can be slow and reception on the ship varies depending on your location on the ship.

This Q & A section is for other users to answer general questions about cruising and NCL.
NCL does offer group discounts. You can call NCL sales dept directly or you can make the reservation through a travel agent. Either way you will get group discount rates.
